Microsoft's first PC, the Surface Pro, has survived Round One.
this week said 400,000 Surface Pros were sold in about a month since its release. That's a decent start (contrary to the media's take).
Remember, this is an $899-$999 tablet
(though I prefer to describe it as a full-blown Windows PC compacted and stuffed into a tablet's chassis), not a $199 Nexus 7
or $329 iPad Mini
Also remember this is just the start. The Pro should evolve to the point where you can have a 1.5 or 2 pound tablet with all-day (at least) battery life -- and still get all of the performance of a mainstream Windows 8 laptop.
And that's the deal-closer for me. It's fast. Don't believe me? Check out these benchmarks
"Surface Pro is easily the fastest tablet on the market today," Anandtech said.
